Question: What types of educational activities, if any, is the company planning?
Folsom Lake College Field Trip on the Comstock, May 2011
Later this month, our team has scheduled an educational field trip for seniors from Virginia City High School. The focus of this visit will again be the geology of the Comstock Lode. This year’s field trip resulted from discussions with Dr. Robert Slaby, Superintendent of Schools, and Principal Patrick Beckwith. We anticipate creating a formal educational program that will integrate with the local school district for students in all grade levels. Topics will focus on science and math, but will additionally supplement existing history programs. A similar program will be offered to Lyon County and other local school districts.
You can expect future updates as our new programs and ideas are created, refined and implemented. As one Folsom Lake College student recently put it after viewing how our team’s geologic expertise illuminated drilling targets with such a high degree of success: “Science works!” This shows how the rewards for education are in the creation of understanding, and understanding fuels the creation of a community working together for a sustainable and mutually prosperous future.
